Somewhat related, I stumbled on this video yesterday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJbqOqSdpx4 profiling hardcore urban gardeners in Colorado farming their own and their neighbor's yards for fun and profit.

Step 1. Grow veggies in your yard
Step 2. ?
Step 3. Profit!

Good point about the gentleman farmer, and I think I agree that it's brilliant, although it still seems a bit weird.

I'll tell you what Lance at Greenthumbr would say. He'd say "Brilliant!".

Surely it's primarily upper-middle to upper income folks who are MyFarm's customers. How different is that than the gentleman farmer who hires some farmhands to actually do all the work on his farm? Yes, it'd be fantastic if we all had the time, energy and wherewithal to do all of our own gardening. But many people who would love the fresh produce may not have the inclination to actually get dirty themselves. At least this way, their lawn care money is going to an organic garden rather than a manicured lawn. :)

Hello!

  • Hi, I'm Alexis, wife of CMR, and mother of Beatrix, Willa, and India. Right now I'm not so crafty, but through my explorations of crafting, crocheting, sewing, cooking, gardening, printing, writing, photographing, and lots of other "ings," I hope to find my way to a craft that I love. I'm so glad that you dropped by. I hope you find something you like, and I hope you leave me a comment to let me know that you were here.
